Table 5 Spearman correlation coefficients for BMD of the femoral neck and calcaneus in patients with a primary tumor located in the lower extremity (n = 24)

From: Early decrements in bone density after completion of neoadjuvant chemotherapy in pediatric bone sarcoma patients

Bone Density ρ = p-value

aBMD contralateral 0.798 < 0.001
BMC affected 0.549 0.005
BMC contralateral 0.741 < 0.001
vBMDfemur - aBMDcalcaneus affected 0.649 0.001
vBMDfemur - aBMDcalcaneus contralateral 0.694 < 0.001
